Forest Fairy

heleneisfor x aritzia slip dress, Vanessa Mooney tassel earrings, Soludos sandals

I've discussed at length the ease and multitasking nature of dresses in the summertime. You just cannot go wrong: they're cute, they're literally the least difficult item of clothing to put on while making its wearer look the most dressed up. Win win, for real.

Another thing that I'm a big advocate for are contrasting elements. Case in point: a sexy slip dress paired with a sporty varsity bomber. Most perfect for chilly summer evenings in the country, I'll say.

And that's how fast you can become a forest fairy with a little attitude.

Summer in the City

realisation par valentina dress, heleneisfor, chanel pumps


I found the perfect summer uniform: this super light silk, rusty red polkadot number. It can be dressed up, it can be dressed down, it takes little to no place in a suitcase, it's perfect for both the beach and the concrete, and best of all: it's super easy.

Been living in this Réalisation Par frock and I'm so obsessed that I've already started eyeing other pieces to add to my wardrobe.

You just can't beat a little summer dress when the dog days are here. What's your favorite thing to wear?

Vintage Treasures at Davis Tisdale

heleneisfor x davis tisdale vintage, new york city, wary parker dorothy sunglasses, gap denim skirt, marrais asa sandals

I've had a soft sport for vintage ever since I've had an opinion about my style. One of my best friends introduced me to thrifting when we were in middle school and I never looked back. In fact, the obsession grew to new heights thanks to the rise of eBay and its vintage shop community. We're all familiar with the Nasty Gal story, are we not? Smack dab in the middle of that subculture, there I was, relentlessly placing bids on the vintage pieces I had to have, night after night.

Before long I had implemented a forced self-ban, as my PayPal balance wasn't budging from the red. As my style grew and my fashion philosophy evolved, a hefty part of my wardrobe today remains comprised of secondhand treasures that I've either cherished for years, or that are new and exciting finds.

The only caveat with my vintage infatuation is that (real real talk) I actually hate shopping. I know, this might come as a shock to all of you, but it's the truth: I really can't be bothered. I like buying stuff, but the search part to me is tedious, and I have no patience for it. Doubly so for finding that epic can't-live-without secondhand needle in a haystack. No matter how much I love wearing those kinds of pieces.

Certainly you guys relate to this? That's why I'm obsessed with David Tisdale vintage. Not only is founder Elizabeth the loveliest of humans, but her eye for unearthing the raddest pieces is unparalleled. What I'm getting at is that she does all the curating work for you so that you don't have to sift through mountains of old threads to get to your treasure.

I can personally attest that she's found me many a treasure, this red linen MaxMara number being one of them. I meannnn. Go ahead and see for yourself.
